Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I really wish my list could go on ^_^. I also found difficult to choose the best one out of a sequel/prequel. I really can't say I prefer Terminator 2 over 1 or vice-versa. Same could be said about Star Wars and LOTR. Those movies are all in the same level for me .
Impressed to see that Batman Begins was already mentioned here. I can't wait to see a sequel. After seeing Clooney playing Batman with rubber nipples under the nothing-but-horrible Joel Schumaker direction, hope has finally come to the Dark Knight

2. Young Frankenstein
3. Johnny Dangerously
6. All three Monty Python movies
7. History of the World Part I
8. LOTR Trilogy
9. Harold and Kumar go to WhiteCastle
10. Mortal Kombat (first one)
11. Dumb & Dumber (not the prequel)
12. The Mask
13. Liar Liar
14. Office Space
15. Nightmare Before Christmas
